The Modern Groom

The groom was dressed to impress in a black tuxedo. His unique style shined with special accessories, like a wooden bow tie, mismatched cuff links and wingtip shoes.

Yes, that bow tie is real wood! Wouldn’t these make unique groomsmen gifts, too?

Dreamy Ceremony Details

Magnolia leaves acted as ceremony programs, and the wording was so beautifully written on these natural little canvases.

This ceremony was very artistic, unconventional and very bohemian. A creative DIY backdrop constructed of handmade dreamcatchers hung from a piece of driftwood, and the sun shined through the lace, beads and feathers.

How gorgeous are the rings they exchanged? That marquis diamond is a stunner!

Arrow Escort Cards

Equally creative reception décor made a seamless transition from the ethereal ceremony. Guests signed a guest book globe that beautifully displayed the words of a true free spirit.

Romantic Rustic Venue

Weddings do not have to be complicated to be stunning. This unfussy barn reception is sure to make your jaw drop! Rustic chandeliers, café lights and sun peeking through the slatted walls illuminated the space and created the perfect ambiance for a romantic dinner. The sweetheart table was completed with romantic white candles in brass candlesticks, and a 6-foot floral garland that cascaded to the barn floor.

Fresh fruits and vegetables, like pomegranates and artichokes, added rich pops of color to the lush garland.

Tapas-Style Menu

Serving small locally grown bites off an artful menu gave a farm-to-table feel, fitting for this carefree and laid back wedding.

Signature Wedding Drinks

At an intimate wedding, you can skip the full bar and offer unique signature drinks. Serving a few specialty drinks will satisfy different tastes and preferences. Grapefruit sangria cocktails are so delicious and refreshing, and Bohemian beer is an appropriate choice, too!

An Assorted Dessert Display

A whimsical desserts display welcomes everyone to try a few different sweets. Vintage linens and accessories build a display almost too pretty to touch. Little gold arrows and fresh fruit adornments give this simple wedding cake bohemian flair!

Shimmering geometric chocolate truffles look like modern little gems you can eat. What a unique treat!

Planning Tip: Create uniformity on a dessert display by using similar finishes on the variety of sweets.

A Truly Adventurous Exit

After the vows were exchanged and the cake was cut, the happy couple departed in a truly bohemian fashion. A restored canoe made for a memorable exit!

Bridal Style: Bohemian Beauty

Being a bohemian bride is all about allowing your natural beauty to shine through with a stunningly effortless look. From your head all the way down to your toes, you want to appear like you’ve been strolling through an enchanted forest or a magnificent meadow. Here are some trends we’ve noticed on brides going for that rustic chic feel.

Starting from the top, the signature hairstyle for a boho look is loose romantic waves. The wavy hairstyle fully captures the carefree feel of the outdoors. Leave your hair down or opt for a low, slightly messy style for a whimsical vibe.

Another hair style option is a braid, which works with both down and up styles. For updos, a french braid can be added near the crown of the head, while longer styles can incorporate a few braids in the front or spread out throughout.

Style tip: Add flowers to your hair to channel your true, inner flower child. Whether woven directly into your hair or worn in the form of a headpiece, florals can be a great accessory for the bohemian bride. Choose real or fake flowers; just make sure the colors and style complement your bouquet.

You’ll already have a radiant glow from your wedding day, and you want your makeup to match the rest of the organic theme, so keeping a natural look is key. Opt out of bold statements such as bright red lips and instead go for a nude or pink lip. Eye makeup and nail polish should be a neutral shade, too.

Bridal Style tips from Kate Aspen | Bohemian Bride | Bridal Headband | Bridal Makeup | Mathew Irving Photography | irvingphotographydenver.com

Aside from your wedding band and engagement ring, your jewelry should be minimal. Less is more! If you insist on having a little bling, a light, small necklace or stud earrings are all you need.

As for the bouquet, there are so many options to choose from! To help narrow it down, we suggest you choose flowers and a color scheme that depicts the types of flora and fauna found in a nature filled setting. This can include light pink roses, cornflowers, lavender, lilac and even wheat grass. Mix and match flowers and plants to create a whimsical, one of a kind look!

Style tip: Wrap the bouquet in burlap ribbon to really set the boho tone.
